Anne With An E (in my opinion) is arguably one of the best shows we have to date. The CBC and Netflix drama series’s wholesome and slightly more modern take of L.M. Montgomery’s classic tale Anne of Green Gables will make you appreciate, relate, and even fall in love with the characters of the story even more.
Since its release, it has garnered massive praise from fans worldwide–prompting them to create a Change.org petition to renew the show for a fourth season (which, as of this writing, has already collected over 1.5 million online signatures).
But until the Canadian production company and the streaming platform actually confirm a new season, us ‘kindred spirits’ will have to settle with rewatching the series. Luckily though, fans of the show and of Anne will not have to wait long to see Amybeth McNulty back on screen, as the actress joins the cast of Stranger Things season four!
McNulty confirms her role in the series via an Instagram post. She wrote, “An honour to join the team. Looking forward to you all meeting Vickie very soon❤️ @strangerthingstv”.
Since this news was released, her Anne With An E co-stars were quick to congratulate her. Miranda Mckeon, the actress who played Josie Pye in the series, wrote “I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS ONE!!!!!! 👏👏👏👏” and “Endlessly proud” to the actress’s post. While fellow actor Aymeric Jett Montaz and Anne With An E writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett also celebrated the actress’s new role by commenting “Congrats🔥🔥🔥🔥” and “Wonderful & Huzzah! 🧡✨” respectively.
Additionally, the Duffer Brothers expressed their excitement in having McNulty join their Stranger Things season four cast. In a clip posted by Netflix, the brothers explain their love for Anne of Green Gables and their excitement to be working with Amybeth McNulty in this upcoming season.
“We [are] also big fans of ‘Anne With An E’ and we love Amybeth McNulty’s portrayal of Anne. And so, we’ve been dying to work with her ever since and she is our perfect Vickie,” Matt Duffer shares in the video.
McNulty is set to play Vickie in the highly anticipated fourth season of the sci-fi drama series. According to the show’s social media post, Vickie is “a cool, fast-talking band nerd who catches the eye of one of our beloved heroes.”
